Humanity in Bangladesh and Burma Needs Your Kind Assistance

 

 
 

Assalaamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBaraktahu,

Pray for respite for humanity, as second week in a row, Helping Hand For Relief & Development (HHRD), is announcing the second emergency relief fund. Last week, HHRD announced the “Burmese Relief Fund”, where generous donations came in from you & much more is needed, as HHRD, through our partner NGO, is assisting 1,500 Families in Yangoon-Sittwaya, Myanmar, with an initial budget of $85,000.

Today HHRD is announcing the start of “Bangladesh Floods Relief Fund 2012”, as we read the sad reports coming that at least 100 people are dead, and 250,000 left stranded by floods and landslides, due to the heaviest rains in years. Authorities and NGOs have started the work of distributing food, drinking water, and medicine among the survivors. Please donate generously for the Bangladesh Floods Victims, Our Brethren in Humanity, by clicking: Donate Now

In Sylhet Bangladesh, a rice and tea-growing area in the northeast, houses are filled by up to three feet of floodwater, and residents are forced to perch on boats or scramble to high grounds. Three children were reported killed. Flooding also hit districts northwest of the capital Dhaka. The downpours lashed the borders with Myanmar and India, with the weather office recording 18.2 inches in Chittagong. According to Jainul Bari, District Commissioner for Cox’s Bazar, these are the worst rainfall in many years.

Disaster control officials said about 150,000 people had been marooned by the floods in the southeast while 50,000 were stranded in Sylhet. About 50,000 were reported stranded in their flooded homes in the northern districts of Gaibandha and Kurigram. Local television showed villagers trudging through waist-high water to relief camps while some moved their cattle on to the roofs of buildings for safety. Donate for them at Click Here to Donate

Also the volatility in neighboring Burma continues, as about 90,000 people have been displaced in the west of Burma. Thousands of homes have been burnt, and more than 80 people are reported dead. In the Province of Arakan, West Burma, about 800,000 Rohingya live, and according to the United Nations, they are described as one of the worlds’ most persecuted minorities. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has informed today that in order to save hundreds of lives, who include many malnourished children and elderly persons, there is immediate need of food supplies to more than 66,000 people. HHRD, through our partner NGO, is assisting 1,500 Families in Yangoon-Sittwaya, Myanmar, with an initial budget of $85,000.

As such neighbors Bangladeshis & Burmese are both in dire need, requiring us the Americans as their neighbors in today’s global village, to come forward and donate generously for both the causes at: Burma, Bangladesh

HELP SYRIA NOW!!!

Volatility in Syria is not stemming. Helping Hand For Relief & Development is working closely with partners in Syria to bring relief to the victims of this crisis; providing food rations, medical care, and infant food to the affected Syrian Families. These families are those, who have been displaced to the borders of Lebanon, Turkey, and Jordan, as well as some Internally Displaced Persons inside of Syria.
